Laura Moore Fine Art Studios presents "Jeffrey K. Jensen: Street Level" with an opening reception on Saturday, Feb. 9, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. The exhibition boasts over 40 impressionistic realism watercolor paintings featuring street scenes from varied locations.
Also in the gallery – preview artisanal bowls created by area artists – in cooperation with St. Peter's Episcopal Church for the Empty Bowls event on Feb. 21 to provide Easter meals to hungry families in the McKinney community.
Jensen's travels have afforded him the opportunity to witness the many diverse cultures, people, and traditions of locations all around the world. His passion for architecture and the built environment has fueled his 30 year love affair of trying to capture the very essence and mood of some of those memories on paper. He is equally comfortable with capturing the spontaneous play of light and its effect on color and texture with his various urban landscapes. Most of his work is small as his primary studio is often an airplane seat during his work travels. His small sensitively rendered watercolors provide a lasting glimpse of everyday street scenes.
Jensen is a design principal for HKS Architects and a 30 year veteran in the design industry. He is presently design director for HKS Hospitality and has led the design and overall project delivery of hotel and resort projects throughout the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean, Spain and Asia. In addition, he has taught watercolor workshops and has lectured at both national and international symposia and conferences.
